thought was clever.
but apparently not.
American Football - mike kinsella's jazz-indie-rock trio.
Bayside - Old friends of mine, liked the older stuff better.
Coheed and Cambria - Again, stick with second stage turbine blade
Death Cab for Cutie - a classic. i'm a huge gibbard fan. photo album and later i love.
The Elected - a project of the penis-donning half of Rilo Kiley. very pretty
Further Seems Forever - Hide Nothing by far surpasses all the band's previous work. If you gave up on them after hearing their offerings with chris carabba, try it again.
Ghosts and Vodka - Victor Villareal owns.
Hot Rod Circuit - H was kinda weak. Haven't listened to these guys in a while, but i like their brand of pop rock.
Iron & Wine - If it's possible for something to be soothing and creepy, Sam has found a way to do it.
Joan of Arc - Mindfuck.
The Killingtons - I don't know why this band doesn't have more followers. Everyone i've ever given their s/t disc has loved it.
